Agilent Technologies this week launched a new microRNA labeling and hybridization kit that it claims can simplify the protocol for running miRNA profiling experiments on its oligonucleotide microarrays.
The kit contains all the reagents and buffer needed to label and hybridize 24 miRNA microarray experiments. Agilent said the system’s dynamic range spans greater than 5 logs for comprehensive miRNA expression profiling, and sample input is 100 nanograms.
Randox Laboratories last week launched a version of its Evidence biochip system that enables users to measure 12 analytes simultaneously in human samples. The system is being targeted at researchers screening cytokines.
Randox said it offers several panels with 35 cytokines and growth factors over five multi-analyte arrays for use with Evidence. Each cytokine assay is performed on a 9 mm² activated biochip with spatially discrete test regions containing antibodies specific to each of the analytes.
